Today in Media Center the AGBU Armenian Virtual College (AVC) unveiled the very first multimedia e-book of its kind: “The Armenian Highland”, part of AVC’s groundbreaking series of electronic books on Armenian culture and history, which is now available, completely free of charge, on mobile devices and desktop computers.

“The Armenian Virtual College is the only online learning center in Armenia. Being a strategic activity, it goes beyond the academic education. Through this new e-book series, AVC is expanding its reach beyond the 3,000 international students already enrolled in its virtual classrooms”,- said the Founding President of Armenian Virtual College Yervand Zoryan at the press conference held at the Media Center.

The speaker Yervand Zoryan added that the subscriptions to the AVC multimedia e-book series are free of charge and can be downloaded in only a few seconds. The iBook version will be available this March for iPads and Mac computers and the browser version will be available for additional mobile devices and PCs.

The topics of “The Armenian Highland” include the Highland’s centuries-old history, natural environment and administrative divisions, each of which is brought to life through images and videos. Readers are able to assess their progress through optional quizzes, identify key events on timelines, and refer to the extensive glossary developed especially for this resource.

“The content of e-books is created by professionals of armenology, pedagogy and technology, who present not only the Yerevan State University, but also the Universities of Stanford and Berkeley”, the speaker Yervand Zoryan says.

“E-books’ content is in seven languages: Eastern and Western Armenian, English, Russian, French, Turkish and Spanish: Google Maps service is also included in the e-books. The next six e-books of the Armenian Virtual College will be released in March”, Yervand Zoryan concluded.
